An Updated Santana For 2007

In 2018 China Car Times was acquired by Autowise. This article originally appeared on

The VW Santana, thats the VW Dasher to our North American friends, has long been a staple vehicle (and seems like it will be for a few years more) of Chinas taxi drivers, police vehicles, and shifty looking fellows in general government workers. Shanghai VW has surely made a killing over the past few years on this model alone!

Chinese car website, is reporting that Shanghai VW are updating the trusty workhorse Santana for 2007 with an electric gas cap, alloy wheels, electrically controlled wing mirrors, CD/MP3 playing radio and several other items which were originally only optional extras but are now being offered as standard. The base price is a bargain 70,980RMB or $9,160USD.

I wonder how many of these Shanghai VW are selling every year now better, newer models are being sold like the Passat?
